NFL odds, Patriots vs. Bengals 2013: New England rolling into Cincy

Mike Zarrilli

New England is riding high headed to the Queen City in Week 5.

The New England Patriots have had all sorts of injuries this season, and yet they stand 4-0 going to play the Cincinnati Bengals.

Going into this game, the line for this contest is EVEN with an over/under of 44.5, according to oddsshark.com.

New England has been without wide receiver Danny Amendola and tight end Rob Gronkowski but has continued to find ways to win behind Tom Brady and a solid defense. Now, the Patriots have another tough injury to deal with as Vince Wilfork is lost for the year with a torn Achilles tendon.

Cincinnati is coming off one of the most surprising games of Week 4, in which they were held out of the end zone in a 17-6 loss to the Cleveland Browns. The Bengals are expected by many to be viable Super Bowl contenders but have not been able to show consistency throughout September.
